Literal Word exists to promote the word of God and not much else. No ads. No articles. No distractions. Simply the Word. We believe that the Bible contains the most important information that anyone could ever come across and that accessing it should be as easy as possible.

This belief has driven every decision we've made designing Literal Word. The app is 100% free and functional even when you're offline. The New American Standard Bible (NASB) translation was selected for faithfully utilizing a word-for-word instead of a thought-for-thought translation method. Each passage of the Bible is clean, customizable, and convenient to access, allowing the reader to focus exclusively on the God-breathed content. Word searches are simple but powerful, featuring a unique visual interface for organizing results with precision, and complete lexicons for original Hebrew and Greek words can be viewed with just a couple taps.

It all comes down to the idea that a straightforward approach to a NASB Bible app maximizes attention to the word of God.

I use it every day. I have it on all my devices. Love the notes option as well as search. Study mode with lexicon. Dark mode. An audio option would be nice. But more than this I would appreciate the ability to save word or phrase searches, to be able to copy and paste the text and their references into another document. Thanks!

I love the app but there's one issue that keeps bugging me. It may just be my tablet, but frequently when I am scrolling a phantom second touch occurs, which causes the app to respond as if I'm pinch zooming, and dramatically increase my font size. I don't get phantom touches in any other app, so I don't think there's anything wrong with my device. It would be great if the settings included an option to disable the pinch to zoom font resizing, or at least lock the font to a particular size.

Super helpful. My only notes would be that I would like it not to time out while I'm reading. I would also like for the word searches to include both the old and new testament, not just whatever one you're in. I would also like to search phrases instead of only words. For example, tree of life, instead of just tree or life. I think with these changes it would be the best app!
